Gorgeous that is a great looking knife.

What is the story on the Sambar stag? How come it is so hard to acquire?

Well seems that someone is having a fit over killing the stags in India so the US is banning imports... you're probably not old enough to remember that precious stuff we used to love to work with called IVORY. My supplier has completely sold out and if I could probably buy more, but I'm not going to pay over 100 bucks for a four inch piece of Sanbar and those prices I have a hard time making money. Normally my Sanbar custom orders start at $400.00, I'm getting out of my market price range if I have to charge more.

Well I didn't get it bloody this weekend even thought I diligently gave it a ferocious effort. I did have several offers to relieve me of my knew knife of which I graciously decline. The pictures do it no justice, the stag shines like a brand new diamond the camera didn't pick up.
